Former Indian skipper Sachin Tendulkar will run with thousands of runners during the IDBI Federal Life Insurance New Delhi Marathon to raise funds for the families of the soldiers who lost their lives in dastardly attack carried out by terrorists.
Before the start of the marathon, Sachin will do 5-10 push-ups with other participants. IDBI Federal, the organizing company, will contribute INR 100 for each of the participants.
The amount will be donated to the family of martyrs. More than 18,000 participants are expected to take part in the races.
“Prior to each of the races, Tendulkar, along with the marathon participants will be doing 5-10 push-ups as part of the #KeepMoving Push-up Challenge in order to make a difference to the families of the martyrs. For each participant in the challenge, IDBI Federal will be donating Rs 100 towards the fund for the Martyrs,” the organizers said in a release.
Tendulkar, the brand ambassador of IDBI Federal Life Insurance, has urged people to challenge their limits.
“I firmly believe that success lies in pushing our limits and challenging ourselves, as we are our only competition.
“This is why we are organising the #KeepMoving Push-up Challenge at this year’s IDBI Federal Life Insurance New Delhi Marathon. I would request all runners to join me in taking this challenge and making a commitment to a fitter future.”
